    Haha. I must say I like your sense of humor. Your "nude photography" joke in another thread made me giggle.

    Hmmm. Tough one!
    I think I go for the colour version, though, and that looks a bit sharper, too. You somehow focussed better on the centre of your lens cap there!

    You might consider doing your color conversions using a channel mixer technique. It looks like, from the low dynamic range, that you have simply 'desaturated' your image and that is bad from a technical, not merely an esthetic, consideration.

    Also your horizon is off about .8 degrees and I don't like the obvious PSing.

    I'm going to go against the flow here and vote for the black and white. Something about it just....speaks to me. Well done!

    Have you tried HDR on the colour version? I am sure that would make for a better picture. Also consider IR next time.
